I mean too long, but there was a purpose and a reason for that season.
When a blogger friend of mine, Stacey, (Who is aca-mazing and a bigger encouragement in my life than she even knows…) asked for some volunteers to join the tour I felt God give me a nudge and tell me to jump in. SO…
Grace my friends. Give me some grace. ;)
|Getting demo's done for Art classes that my good friend, Brianne, and I get to teach together.|
|Another Demo. This one is of my daughter;s silhouette. She is full of life and color so that is how I painted her. ;)|
|Average week at our home. We all have fun painting. Can you tell?|
|Was privileged to be asked to return and do another experiential service for a Youth Retreat. This one was on The Persecuted Church. It is one of my favorite things to help others understand what people are going through across the world.|
|We went on our last youth mission trip before resigning. (Yes, I am a dork.) :)|
|They repaired the inside of a family's home which had some severe damage inside. The husband had aids and was unable to work. They also completely re-roofed another family's home and did an immaculate job. Love these teens!|
|Survived Michigan's worst winter ever. With record snow falls and and record low temps it was an experience for sure! ;)|
|We lost power for 5 days straight over Christmas and of course, while family was staying with us. Entertaining 7 kids while trying to keep the fires going to keep the house warm made for some good memories.|
|Yes, grown men do play Bakugan. ;)|
|Good times. We were so excited to be able to visit a bunch of my family. It had been years y'all. Way too long! (Can you guess which one is from Texas?)|
|Movie time with the Cousins!|
|Cousins having some fun!|
|Heading up north and seeing my brother from another mother. (In other words we grew up together and I count him as my brother.) P.S. Don't tell him this pic is in here...He doesn't like it. ;)|
|Being Silly with my Hubby at a good friend's Grad party for her daughter.|
|Love. This. Man.|
Trying to get a pic with my kids. It only took 6 tries... Goofballs.
|Learning about the racism and inequality |
that still continues to this day.
|Loving Nature as usual.|
|Hiking the largest Dune. Love those Great Lakes.|
|Good times at Lake Michigan!|
3. Why do you write/create what you do?
4. How does your writing/creating process work?
To be more specific. There is always music playing and then the juices of creativity start flowing and away we go.
